music for a Thursday

Ravens and Chimes

Brooklyn band. Kind of reminds me of Conor Oberst. Good stuff.



This is where we are

found on Battle of the Midwestern Housewives

I know, I know. I'll get back to posting real entries soon.

stuck in my head all day

And I can't seem to find a video that isn't a complete bandwith hog and stutters unmercifully. That also is about how my day has gone.

file under gross but fascinating

OK, if this was with cute bunny rabbits, it would be cruel and horrifying. However, I hate bugs. Particularly spiders.

In this instance, I am ok with my own hypocrisy.

I've got a bright idea

I think I am going to leave the frozen tundra that is Chicago.

Where oh where shall I go?

Tahiti? The south of France? Mallorca, perhaps?

No, I think I will move to the tropical climate of Denmark. Yeah, that's it. That's a brilliant idea.

New Year's? It was amazing. The Danes are seriously unsane when it comes to flammable or ignitable materials. Every single person in the entire country outside lighting off fireworks as big as their houses with a blatant disregard for safety, sanity or the basic laws of gravity.

In fact, they are so addicted to them that they make special ones that you light at the dinner table, which hurl hard projectiles like whistles and noisemakers at unsuspecting guests while spewing metallic confetti into every nearby food dish and beverage glass. For some reason, Danish people find this highly amusing.

After enough drinks, you kind of have to agree with them.
